Make sure to visit the Fingerstones

Take Cootehill road out of Cavan, Take turnoff for Stradone on right, than turn First left. After church continue up hill until you get to sign on left hand side for Castletara Millenium Trail at entrance to forest. on the Detail Map above H46297 08140 A 
The portion of the track be Park here and walk up track, a pleasant short detour to right on stony track to Fingerstones is worthwhile. When you rejoin track continue until the track ends at forest, than go through forest to fence. Follow fence uphill until gap in fence than proceed up field to trig.
